Summer Garden Essentials

Published on 2nd June 2017

Make the most of your outdoor space with stylish essentials for that perfect summer meal. Whether you’re throwing a barbecue for family and friends or want to enjoy relaxed dining outdoors, we’ve handpicked the essentials.

Outdoor décor can take your garden from backyard BBQ to stylish summer affair with some well-placed accessories and touches. Start with the furniture, no-one likes to enjoy deliciously barbecued food or fresh and zesty drinks on tired old deckchairs! Make sure to give your seating an update. We love the simple Parisian feel of the table sets at Dunnes Stores with their understated café vibe.

Printed blankets and chic picnic baskets are perfect if you don’t fancy splashing out on furniture and are great for smaller spaces or patios – even balconies! Check out Flying Tiger‘s classic feeling check blankets with cool matching cups, platter and accessories. This versatile alfresco option is great for taking on-the-move for sunny days at the park or the beach. Fill with your favourite snacks, treats and drinks!

Set the scene with fun accessories like quintessential bunting in classic summer fete style or go full-on cool with bold pineapples on strings in funky colours from Penneys. Solar powered light bulbs are great for when your summer alfresco goes on into the evening and these fun coloured ones from Dunnes add that roof-top bar feel to every outdoor space. Play some fantastic tunes to get in the summer party mood with the latest phones at Three for the perfect outdoor gathering.

Moroccan feeling lanterns add a touch of interest to any BBQ setting and are the perfect way to add that soft evening glow on lazy summer nights. Whip up a delicious BBQ special with our recipe blog, set the right tone with alfresco dining essentials and get ready for a feast of summer style.
